Online Petitions soar against Amber Heard
Talking about its upcoming sequel, Aquaman actress Amber Heard has been in the news for a while now.

They have also created an online petition for the same reasons.
People Dont Want to See Amber Heard in Aquaman 2
We don’t know exactly what is going to happen until now, but let’s see what is causing this situation. Amber Heard has been accused of being a domestic abuser by her ex-husband Johnny Depp. He reported many incidents where he became the victim of the domestic abuse at the hands of his (then) wife. In addition to this, Amber Heard was also arrested in 2009 for abusing Tasya Van Ree, who was also a former domestic partner.
Amber Heard also reported phone calls from Johnny Depp fans giving death threats to her. All these incidents might have put Amber Heard in a bad light and hence the petitions against her. No matter, what happens with Johnny Depp, Warner Bros. will proceed as they want Aquaman to be a blockbuster. Also, the fans loved the whole cast. The studio has set the release date of Aquaman 2 as 16th December 2022.
